A Day in the Life of Rosie Pope: Pregnancy Guru, Mom & Much More

You may have discovered Rosie Pope on Bravo’s reality show Pregnant in Heels, but the pregnancy guru already had a major mommy following, and deservedly so. From her Rosie Pope Maternity clothing line (on Gilt today) and stores to her MomPrep education sessions and Mommy IQ: The Complete Guide to Pregnancy book, Pope manages to guide and inspire countless moms-to-be — all while raising four adorable kids under the age of five. How does she do it all? We asked and she revealed what a day in her life looks like — which typically includes pancakes, school runs, meetings, trains, lots of running, and wine.

5:00 am: Wake up to feed Bridget [nine weeks old] and shower and get ready before my other babes get up. I also make an espresso iced coffee in my favorite glass tumbler and take some long sips!

6:00 am: Between 6:00 and 7:00 my other kids wake. James [five years old] is always first and he likes to dive into talking about his dreams, then comes Vivienne [two years old] who plunges straight for her milk and then Wellington [three years old] sleepily searches for his pancakes! I always make a big breakfast for them and try and sit down in all the chaos so we can really connect before the day gets going.

8:30 am:  School drop off – everyone comes along for the ride!

9:00 am: I take the train into New York City now that we are officially in the burbs. Bridget comes with me and as she snoozes I catch up on all the emails that have already flooded in.

10:00 am: My first duty at the office usually involves working on both my maternity and baby collections from design through to fabric, fit, and new innovations that I want to try.

12:00 pm: My husband and I work together and so we try and spend time each day to connect and work on strategy for the projects we have coming up and would like to pursue so we can be as productive as possible during the day.

1:00 pm: I go for a quick run to clear my head and give me the energy I need for the rest of the day. Our offices are near the river so it’s a lovely run.

2:00 pm: Each day is different, but the afternoon is generally filled with filming, creating MomPrep educational content and a lot of running (that’s the theme of my day) from one appointment to the other, desperately trying to fit it all in before my train home that Bridget and I normally run like mad people to catch!

6:00 pm: Walk in the door for dinner, baths, homework, stories, and as many cuddles as I can fit in!

8:00 pm: Everyone is asleep as I have to admit I pour myself a nice glass of white wine. My husband and I then sit down to dinner (he cooks) and we dive back into work as we don’t spend much time together during the day it’s important to connect and work on things at night.

11:00 pm: Sleep!

Interview: Vanessa Lachey Talks Mommyhood


Feminine. Comfortable. Layered. That’s how TV personality and haute mama Vanessa Lachey describes her maternity style. Her sleek silhouettes stood out from the rest, so we asked her to be part of our Baby on Board event. Here she reveals her favorite bump-chic designers and can’t-live-without staples. Plus, learn how she got her 6-month-old son to sleep for 12 hours a night (yes, you heard us right!).

Gilt Baby & Kids: Your pregnancy style really impressed us! Did finding the right pieces come easily?
Vanessa Lachey:
It was an extremely difficult challenge at first. I’m 32, so for 10-plus years I’ve known what fits. But when my body changed I had to start from scratch. I got depressed when I shopped with my girlfriends — I thought things would fit, and they didn’t. Finding my style and wardrobe again involved a lot of trial and error. I spent a solid day of trying on different styles and fits and found what I loved. The maternity style that I came into was a wearable style for when I was pregnant and for when I wasn’t.

Pea in the Pod: Style the Looks

I’ve always loved the styles from Pea in the Pod — classic, effortless, chic. And this carefully curated collection of smart 9-to-5 tops and dresses has some great finds. Below are my top three picks from the sale, and some tips on how to accessorize them. I would love to hear about your go-to maternity accessories…tell me what they are in the comments section below!

1.  Burgundy dress with faux leather details

This dress is a great option for the office, but edgy enough for an after-hours rendezvous (thanks to the leather details). Opt for these sexy Barbara Bui python booties for instant glam, and carry all your essentials in this divine Rebecca Minkoff tote (the perfect day bag!). Throw a pair of these Bloch ballet flats in there as well, it’s always a good idea to have flats handy.
